Aftercare

DAILY CARE TO FOLLOW FOR 10 DAYS

1. TO HELP THE AREA HEAL you must DAB the area with lukewarm water using a cotton pad. Once dry gently apply a pea size of aftercare balm to the area using a cotton bud and repeat this procedure every morning and night.

2. WHEN WASHING YOUR FACE please ensure you go around the area and to not splash the face with water or products.

3. KEEP HAIR AWAY from the area to prevent possibly infection.

4. SOME ITCHING IS NORMAL. Do not pick peel or rub the brow as the colour may heal unevenly and you could rick infection, which in turn could lead to scarring. Allow the colour to flake away by itself.

5. NO FACIALS. Do not receive any facial beauty treatments for 10 days after procedure.

6. NO MAKE UP should be applied closely to the brow area for 3 days.

AVOID FOR 2 WEEKS

Do not expose the brows to direct sunlight, tanning treatments, Jacuzzis, saunas, salt water, chlorinated pools, and direct shower spray. Do not receive eyebrow tinting, waxing, electrolysis, or laser hair removal treatments close to the brow region.

LONG TERM CARE

• Use a good high factor sunscreen. Sun exposure will fade your brows.

• If you are planning a chemical peel, we advise not until 4 weeks after your review appointment and to advise your facialist you have permanent make up.

• Please inform the national blood service if you donate blood, as you may not be eligible to give blood for 4 months post application.

• Always read the ingredients in your skincare products. Ingredients such as Retin, Vitamin A, Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid (a lot are in acne, anti-ageing products) will fade your brow enhancement.

AFTERCARE PRODUCTS

Since micropigmentation has gained its popularity, after procedure balms have been over developed and overpriced and there are several different companies you can choose from. All of which will normally charge you a small mortgage to stock. I believe this does not have to be costly and keeping your outgoings down is important.

I recommend using the below product from Aveeno. I have sworn by this product for years and I always get good, healed results. Its creamy, sits well on the skin due to its lightness, is not too oily and doesn’t contain petroleum jelly.

A large bottle normally costs approx. £7 and once purchased I recommend decanting into a small tester pot for each client. You can then make up an aftercare kit for them to take home including your aftercare instructions, some cotton buds and anything else you wish to pop in. This is a nice way to end the treatment and will save you getting call backs from clients who didn’t pay attention to your verbal aftercare whilst they were in your clinic. This should be given to every client after every procedure.
